Bug ID: 1040050
Summary: nvidia driver does not build due to changed kref api
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE Tumbleweed
Version: Current
Hardware: Other
OS: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Kernel
Assignee: mmarek@xxxxxxxx
Reporter: mmarek@xxxxxxxx
QA Contact: qa-bugs@xxxxxxx
CC: sndirsch@xxxxxxxx
Found By: ---
Blocker: ---

The driver fails to link against the 4.11 kernel, because the kref api now
depends on lib/refcount.c functions which are GPL-only:

FATAL: modpost: GPL-incompatible module nvidia-drm.ko uses GPL-only symbol
'refcount_inc'

There is a fix in 4.12-rc1 already:

d557d1b58b35 ("refcount: change EXPORT_SYMBOL markings")
